Small Business @ Risk

Over half of small firms have no clear policy for the secure disposal of sensitive information, new research reveals.

A survey by paper shredder manufacturer Fellowes finds that 56% of small businesses do not have a fully documented policy for disposing of key information and 14% have no policy in place at all.

Despite the lack of formal policy, nearly half of firms surveyed believe identity fraud is increasing, while over half feel credit card crime is set to boom.
